Enzyme Kinetics

The rate at which the enzyme works is called the study of enzyme kinetics. In chemical kinetics the most fascinating area of study is enzyme catalysis.The enzyme catalysis usually results in a very large increase in reaction rate and high specificity. In enzyme kinetics the substrate concentration will increase in definitely and it doesn’t increase the rate of enzyme catalyzed reaction beyond a certain point.

In the enzymesubstrate complex, the substrate molecule binds to a very specific region of the enzyme molecule called the active site. These active sites are highly selective for a specific substrate molecule with which the enzyme binds. This is why enzymes are such highly specific catalysts, catalyzing a single reaction, or a set of closely related reactions. There are two proposed models to explain the specificity of the interaction between the substrate molecule and the active site of an enzyme.
